President Trump fumbled the name of Vice President Mike Pence during a bizarre, rambling speech at the annual House Republicans retreat in Baltimore Thursday night.


Whether it was Trump congratulating himself for repealing clean water regulations or railing against energy-efficient light bulbs for making him "look orange," the speech had Twitter shaking their heads.

But when Trump started listing off some notable Republicans that he recalled being at an event, he flubbed Mike Pence's name, mistakenly calling him:

"Mike Pounce."

The new moniker joins such legendary Trump name gaffes as "Tim Apple," "Mike Bolton" and "Melanie" Trump.


And with a name like "Pounce," Twitter found it hard to resist doing just that.

Someone needs to create a cartoon cat named "Mike Pounce" STAT.




But we all know how this will end, right?

Pounce is described as:

"A beautiful, funny gift book with more than 70 previously unpublished photographs, Pounce reveals adorable cats and kittens as they pounce and jump through the air, arms outstretched -- all in Casteel's signature up-close, mid-action style."
